HIR Project Officer

Growing up on a family farm in the southern agricultural area of Western Australia is where Sarah’s interest for the environment began. After completing her Bachelor of Environmental Management and Sustainable Management at Murdoch University she moved to the south coast where she gained 4 years of experience as a research agronomist working in both the private and public sector. Her role involved working alongside broadacre farmers, grower groups, industry and researchers on the south coast of Western Australia, looking at cereal, oilseed and legume crop production and protection, with a focus on faba bean.

Sarah enjoys building relationships with primary producers and is excited by the synergies that occur as agricultural and sustainable land management practices are combined to support development of carbon projects, whilst providing the opportunity for an additional income stream to landholders over the life of the projects and the future benefits to both the land and broader community.

Sarah is a member of the project management team working on Human Induced Regeneration projects providing support to landholders in the southern rangelands of WA.
